What follows is an announcement that will run in the August debut issue of our new sister-publication El Ojo del Mar. The decision to expand into Mexico’s Gold Coast was not made lightly. The move will entail a great deal of time, expense and effort. What has given us great confidence in going forward with the enterprise is the wonderful experience we have had with our literary contributors, advertisers and loyal readers here at Lakeside and in Guadalajara for the past 25 years. We will always be grateful for that and hope we have their best wishes as we move into what will be heretofore non-chartered territory for us.
After 25 years of serving the Lake Chapala and Guadalajara areas, we are expanding our operation to Mexico’s fabulous Gold Coast. We will distribute 10,000 copies of El Ojo Del Mar monthly in Puerto Vallarta, Manzanillo, Mazatlan, Barra de Navidad, San Blas, Guadalajara and Chapala.
One mission of El Ojo Del Mar is to inform and entertain our readers. Another is to provide an outlet for the creative expression of local writers and photographers. We cordially invite writers and photographers living along the Pacific coast of Mexico, and elsewhere, to submit articles or photos.
Several fine writers from coastal communities are represented in this issue, and we expect more as our magazine becomes better-known here on the Gold Coast. Regardless of your interests—current events, art or book reviews, fiction, legal matters, health issues, hobbies—please send them to us. Poets and photographers are equally welcome. We also encourage associations and charitable organizations to send us information about events in upcoming months. Contact Editor Alejandro Grattan at email@example.com
Advertisers should contact Bruce Fraser, Director, Special Projects and Marketing, at 333-559-2046, or at the number or e-mail below. We are delighted to be here in one of the most exciting parts of Mexico and are committed to making the same high-caliber contributions to your communities, as do your other fine English-language publications.
